Three offers for 2010 Pennsylvania TE

Just less than a month ago York (Pa.) Central York tight end Kyle Baublitz found himself in a position familiar to many high school juniors with hopes of playing football at the college level.

The 6-foot-4, 256-pound member of the Class of 2010 was filling out questionnaires after returning from summer camps. Recently, however, all of that changed.

"I've now got three scholarship offers," Baublitz said. "Clemson, West Virginia and Boston College have all offered. I received the offers from West Virginia and Boston College on September 2, and then I think I got the offer from Clemson last Thursday. It was exciting.

"I contacted the coaches from West Virginia and Boston College but I haven't called Clemson yet, but I've been to Clemson and Boston College.

"Clemson had a good atmosphere and really nice coaches. They were excited that I had got down there to check the place out.

"Boston College is only a few minutes away from Boston, so you've got the Red Sox and the Celtics. There would be plenty to do there. Plus, the coaches there were really good, too. Also, the food was great," he laughed.

Central York is 1-1 on the season and Baublitz has been playing on both sides of the ball. In his first game he recorded 16 tackles at middle linebacker, but is unsure of his stats from his second game.

Baublitz was able to go to a game in Week One of the college football season.

"I went to the Michigan game against Utah a couple of weeks ago," he recalled. "That went good. I had been receiving some interest from them.

"I've also been getting letters from Notre Dame, Auburn, Louisville, Pitt, Michigan State and NC State.

"I don't have any favorites yet. At this point I just want to get around to some of the schools and get to know the campuses. I'll probably go see the Maryland-Cal game, a game at West Virginia and then a Notre Dame game as well."

Baublitz has run the 40-yard dash in 5.02 seconds and may project as an offensive lineman at the college level.
